Loop City is the spoken word show that wowed Melbourne late last year. In collaboration with former MSO violinist Sarah Curro and composer Yvette Audain, two favourites of the Melbourne poetry scene, Amanda Anastasi and Steve Smart put together a spoken word show that breathes the city we live in, whilst dousing it with some much needed critical eyes. The show traverses tones, with the music underneath lifting the poetry up rather than smothering it, and for you, we have two clips from the show.
You have two more chances to see Loop City in April and May at the Courthouse Theatre in Eltham and a regional show out in Ballarat.
Thursday, April 17 @ 8pm / Eltham Courthouse, 728 Main Rd, Eltham / $5 / Open Mic
Saturday, May 3 @ 7.30pm / The Art Gallery of Ballarat, 40 Lydiard St N, Ballarat / $25-15 (Bookings or on the door)
